Selective oxidation of glycerol to tartronic acid over Pt/N-doped mesoporous carbon with extra framework magnesium catalysts under base-free conditions

Abstract

N-Doped mesoporous carbons (NMCs) with extra framework magnesium were prepared by a one-pot method and used as supports for Pt catalysts. The surface basicity of NMC improved in the presence of extra framework magnesium (e.g., –Ph–O–Mg), meanwhile, the electron density of Pt was enriched by the electron transfer from graphitic N in NMC to Pt. As a result, the catalytic activity of the supported Pt catalyst was improved to be able to selectively oxidize glycerol (GLY) to tartronic acid (TA) under base-free conditions.
